I saw this plus size tweed vest and pants outfit
in person at Lane Bryant this past weekend, and it was very
cute. If I had to dress for an office environment, I would have definitely scooped it up. In fact, it's so cute that this outfit is already sold out online. If you want one, you have to march your booty down to your local store and get it there while they last.

I heard the rumors, but I wanted to wait and see it with my own eyes. Well, it's true, kids... Tommy Hilfiger has returned to plus sizes. From what I have seen so far, it's less logo intensive than before, so that's a plus in my book. For instance, there is this Elongated Placket Polo Shirt which sports a more subdued tonal embroidered logo crest. Available in 6 colors in sizes 1X-3X for $45.50 USD.

I don't know about you, but I can't dress for spring and summer without a whole mess of different colors and styles of t-shirts. They're so good for layering, as well as just cool and casual. They're great under a jacket or cardigan, but just as good alone with a pair of shorts. Scoop neck styles lend themselves particularly to dressing up with an eye catching necklace or lightweight scarf. The stretch cotton one shown above is Caslon, at Nordstrom, and is available in sizes 1X - 3X in 5 colors.

Transition easily from winter blues to spring flings with the New Blue Attitude collection at Lane Bryant. You know how this time of year is... you'd like to freshen up your wardrobe and get out of the big sweaters, but the weather is not cooperating just yet. The pieces in this collection are versatile enough to herald the arrival of Spring, without looking like you just came back from a tropical vacation and forgot that you live in Chicago. Layering short sleeves with jackets and cardigans will keep you from freezing in the cool morning temps, but allow you to sneak out to bask in the afternoon sun at lunch time.
